Why was Jesus accused of being a friend of sinners? Why did he put top priority on relationship not religion, acceptance rather than performance, and value friendship with him before behavior? In Friend of Sinners, you'll discover a different Jesus, a Jesus who will radically change the way you see God, yourself, and others - a Jesus who will never give up on you, never stop loving you.

Pastor and writer Rich Wilkerson Jr. shines a spotlight on every Christians calling to reach the world, seek the lost, and save sinners with Jesus scandalous message of the gospel of grace.
The Bible calls Jesus a friend of sinners. What does that mean? In Friend of Sinners, Rich Wilkerson Jr. shows readers the profound implications of the reality that Jesus calls us friends not because of who we are or what we have done, but because of who he is. While he was on earth, he knew that people needed to belong before they would want to behave. He understood that the power within him was greater than the darkness around him, so he loved fearlessly.
By following his example, we can have the same clear conviction and compassion for the lost that he did. His gospel of scandalous grace cannot be overestimated. When we embrace the truth that we all need Jesus equally and when we trust him to bring transformation in peoples hearts, we will walk as Jesus walked, experiencing the glory of God in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

“Rich Wilkerson Jr has inspired and deepened my walk with Christ in his new book Friend of Sinners. While it is easy for Christians today to be labeled as judgmental, this book shows how Jesus lived as a friend to the outcast and gives you a strategy to live your life in the same way.” - Mark Batterson
“Most people know some facts and information about Jesus: carpenter, teacher, miracle worker. But it’s how we know him personally that makes all the difference. Rich Wilkerson Jr’s new book, Friend of Sinners will challenge you to take a step back, question your approach, and begin choosing relationship over routine religion.” - Steven Furtick
“Friend of Sinners highlights a core truth this world needs to hear we must break out of the boxes of our normality and dare to go close to those we don’t understand. Pastor Rich beautifully emphasizes this while encouraging us to start where people are, not where we want them to be. This book will forever change how you love others.” - Lysa Terkeurst
“Rich carries the ability to seamlessly engage people with the message of Jesus, reaching the church and unchurched, both saved and sinners alike. He is a generational thinker, planner, and writer in addition to being a phenomenal pastor. Friendship with God through Christ is both a simple, yet a profoundly important foundation that is at the very core of our faith. Inspiring and thought-provoking, Friend of Sinners unpacks friendship with Jesus in a refreshing and transforming way.” - Brian Houston
